Earlier this year Warner Bros came out with a mobile game for their highly successful TV series Westworld. However, they were soon sued by Bethesda, claiming that Westworld was a copy of Bethesda’s Fallout Shelter game.
Earlier this week, the involved companies released a joint statement saying that they’ve resolved the lawsuit. The terms of the settlement weren’t revealed.
Soon after the lawsuit was resolved, Warner Bros sent out an announcement saying that they’ll be shutting down Westworld. As of January 15th, the game was removed from App Store and Google Play. Players who had the game installed were sent a message saying:
We hope you have enjoyed playing Westworld. We are sorry to tell you the park is entering a new phase and will no longer be taking applications for new employees. The game will be removed from the App Store and Google Play on January 15, 2019, and officially closed on April 16, 2019. As of today, you will no longer be able to make in game purchases. If you have any in-game currency, remember to use it before the game goes offline on April 16, 2019.
We are sorry to see the Westworld mobile game go, and had an incredible time creating new content and events for players to enjoy. We deeply appreciate our community’s enthusiasm and participation in the game.
We are thankful for all who have supported Westworld and hope that the remaining time with the game will be entertaining.
